Bus-Tech's DataBlaster 2 is a family of high-performance control units, differentiated only by port configuration, that reach their high throughput levels by emulating industry-standard tape drives at each side of the connection. On the mainframe side, they connect up to two S/390 ESCON (Enterprise Systems Connection) or Bus and Tag channels, providing throughput speeds of up to 32 megabytes per second (MB/s). With no additional software or network switching equipment, DataBlaster 2 results in simple, reliable parallel data transfers.
Rates of transfer in preliminary customer tests have exceeded 40 Gigabytes per hour (single ESCON connection to S/390) with HARBOR File Transfer (HFT) software.
